In 2008, a heritage walking tour was published in the New Edinburgh News. Based on popular demand, the brochure was updated and published as a brochure — in English and French — highlighting New Edinburgh’s heritage credentials by means of a self-guided walking trail. It connects together all 17 of the individually-designated heritage buildings in the neighbourhood, 16 of which are located within the HCD.
Preparation of the brochure was a major undertaking involving several community volunteers. The photographs were taken by Louise Imbeault, the fine ink sketches were drawn by John Farmer, and the two maps were prepared by Clare Robertson. Translation was undertaken by Anne-Sophie Belzile, production was coordinated by Cindy Parkanyi, and Katherine Arkay worked on sponsorship, distribution, and a whole lot more.
In April 2020, we re-printed the Walking Tour in the New Edinburgh News. For those who missed it, we also offer electronic versions via the links below. Feel free to download and take a stroll through our neighbourhood’s history.
